Is It Proportional? Case Studies on the Amended Federal Rules of Civil Procedure

The 2015 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure identified “proportionality” as a significant factor in determining what information is discoverable in litigation. In this webinar, attorneys Evan S. Strassberg and Marie G. Bahoora will provide an overview of the amendments followed by a rollicking segment of the game show “Is It Proportional?,” using fact patterns from real cases to explain how courts are applying the new rules in specific contexts. They will conclude with key takeaways for crafting discovery requests to maximize your chances of winning in the event the scope of the requests is challenged, and how/when to object to requests that are propounded in a way that properly invokes the new standards and increases your likelihood of prevailing in any discovery dispute.
